By "ignore", do you mean not to acknowledge that the application sent
unrecognizable text to the terminal?  I wouldn't think that behavior was desirable.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2003-01-14 06:56:41 UTC
I have no idea to handle those characters with EUC-JP. do you think this problem
can be fixed like box drawing issue? if possible, it would be great.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2003-08-13 08:41:25 UTC
It looks good in the current release. I couldn't reproduce it now.
